Yes, I was going to ask the same thing about roommates. Will you refund us the extra off of our rooms after we pay? We know we will have 3 in a room and possibly four. But I noticed you pay the full amount when registering. Thanks!

I'm new to homeschooling and AO so I was incredibly excited to learn that the conference was going to be near me. I was really looking forward to meeting other homeschool families that love Charlotte Mason and I was hoping to learn a lot.

Unfortunately, the conference is just not affordable for my family. My husband has Multiple Sclerosis and is on long-term disability. I'm extremely disappointed that I won't be able to go and spend time learning with all of you wonderful ladies. Will the conference sessions be recorded and offered at an affordable rate?

I really do appreciate all that you ladies have done to make AO so incredible.

Blessings,

You would by early April, right? The other option is to pay the remaining balance (which doesn't include the discount for tripling or quadrupling in a room. That's why I am asking. I know you have a plan and am not fretting.

No, she's right, Lani. We don't have the discount for extra people built into paypal because it was too complicated. But yes- we are keeping track and you will be refunded those, probably before you get there.

As for kids in the room- it's a little confusing. To be clear, the rooms are double occupancy- two queen beds in each room. We have to have to have two paying guests in each room. Everybody will be sharing a room- you can share with your spouse or a friend or a teenager or another adult guest we assign, but the only option we have for a single room is, I think the handicapped accessible.

We are charged the same whether your other occupant is your ten year old or an adult mom coming to the conference, and we want to permit as many parents to attend as possible.

An alternative besides the RV, and I realize this is not as attractive or convenient, is to get a hotel room for your family offsite (or and lodge there, paying the day rates like others commuting. You'd need access to a vehicle and comfort with driving in the area.

I do realize it's not ideal for everybody. There are always trade-offs. We have to work with our limitations, too. We needed the conference to be in Texas this year, and this was the first, after trying several places, that had openings in dates that worked for us. There are some aspects of Lakeview that we are super excited about, and some that are quirky and require more of a work-around= just like anyplace.

Hi Wendi
Can you point me to an agenda or possible schedule for this event? I am very interested in attending but I use a secular style of Charlotte Mason and I want to know how much emphasis will be on religion before I register.
Thanks.
